different tlesh hold than what the obama administration has laid out when you look carefully at what the president said at the general assembly, the most recent remarks on iran's nuclear program, he said the united states will not allow iran to have a nuclear bomb. i am paraphrasing to a certain degree. the word capability was not there. you did hear it from the israeli prime minister and today you're hearing it once again from mitt romney. mitt romney has been vague. he has gone back and forth on the issue of capability and sometimes he says it and sometimes he doesn't. today he is very cat goral in saying in a romney administration iran would not be able to have that capability of building a nuclear bomb which is significantly different than the threshold laid out by the president. >> and let's talk about syria which has been somewhat of a thorn in the side of this current sitting american president, and mr. romney, governor romney's view of syria, there was something in these prepared remarks that we excerpted that stood out to me and i want to get your take on it. he said or he w

obama administration to the uprising, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a speech singled out vladimir putin as a basically a foe of the uni

nevertheless the wyoming congressman is no amateur and no rookie when it comes to face-offs with the obama administration. just a few moments ago he tweeted out a picture of himself on the debate stage here in danville, kentucky. i guess he was going through his walk through, you might say, at that point, wolf. and we are told by top aides to paul ryan that he expects to be called mr. ryan later on this evening. in one corner paul ryan in an ice cream shop on the campaign trail, mitt romney's running mate didn't exactly predict a rocky road in his first debate with joe biden. but he did give the vice president the edge. >> joe biden's been on this stage before. he's been on the big stanls. this is my first time. >> reporter: in the other corner a man who's been on this stage before. >> ever seen me rope-a-dope? >> reporter: but biden better have his gloves up. ryan will be looking to debate substance, the wyoming congressman will zero in on this widely received presidential gaffe earlier this month. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried for the last f

foreign policy speech, republican presidential candidate mitt romney had this to say about the obama administrati administration's work in the middle east. take a listen. >> but it is our responsibility and the responsibility of the president to use america's greatest power to shape history, not to lead from behind, leaving our destiny at the mercy of events. unfortunately, that's exactly where we find ourselves in the middle east under president obama. >> but a fellow republican, senator rand paul, tells cnn that romney's approach is wrong, that more u.s. intervention in the mideast would not be effective, that our wars have fared poorly. in your opinion, what is the role of the u.s. in this region? >> first of all, we have to determine, is this region important to us? and the answer definitely is yes. because of our allies in the region from nato ally turkey which is under fire right now from syria to israel that's constantly being threatened to our gulf allies. secondly, energy. thirdly, this is the transportation and geographic hub of eurasia. fourthly, it's the cradle of civiliz

future leadership of syria is concerned a little bit earlier than the obama administration has. but as far as plans for what happens from this point on, no. and there is no appetite from the united states or quite frankly any country in the western world for boots on the ground in syria. as we heard from the vice president, joe biden, this is not libya. it is a much more complicated scenario. >> i want to get to the libya comparison in a minute. ryan claimed that the administration referred to assad as a reformer. a reformer. to your best -- >> no, this has been -- it has not. this has been fact checked by several sources including cnn. the word reformer was used by hillary clinton in march of 2011. and in reference to bashar al assad. many of the members of congress of both parties she said have gone it syria in recent months said they believe he's a reformer. now, of both parties. and you to remember something about bashar al assad about the uprising against him in the year 2000, 2001 when he took over from his father, he was viewed as potentially a reformer by many people in west

criticizing the president but trying to talk about what he would do and tell us how a romney administration would run america. i do think that president obama is going to come back with a very different strategy. i think his advisors have probably told him that he needs to put more energy into this. he may pursue a strategy of trying to fire up his base, i don't think that's what he needs to do to win undecided voters. part of me kind of hopes he does it. >> fascinating night. i'm sure we will all talk again next week. my money is on an obama fight back but will it be enough? i'm not convinced. i thought he was very lackluster the other night. he has to really raise the game pretty substantially. thank you to my all-star panel. we'll be back next with more politics and much more with joe walsh from the eagles. a lot to say about the race and life in the fast lane. ♪ ♪... ♪... ♪... choose the perfect hotel >> announcer: you never know when, but thieves can steal your identity and turn your life upside down. >> hi. >> hi. you know, i can save you 15% today if you open up a charge card

obama's policy, not necessarily what joe biden said. but according to policy, we transition to afghan forces in 2014, and the administration maintains flexibility to keep forces or redeploy forces, even in a non-combat role. there are a number of years after 2014 that the administration's own policy allows for the same thing. congressman ryan believes that 2014 should be the transition, and they think the flexible the president built in is appropriate. but the goal, handing off security to the afghan forces on that very important issue there, is no difference between the president and governor romney. >> stylistic points of debate, we heard vice president biden interrupting congressman ryan. calling him in friend. did you prepare for that? >> i watched a lot of biden debate tape over the years. i never seen him perform quite like he did tonight. i'll leave it to others to judge whether it was appropriate for the office of vice president. the contrast was striking on substance, where congressman ryan, laid out a plan, governor romney wanted to pursue the next four years. laid out what

million jobs in four years, a pledge that the obama camp quickly matched, now argues that the way he'll cut taxes without increasing the deficit is so many jobs will be created under ms. administration that people work and spend the money they don't pay in taxes. it could happen. i could be as tall and handsome as you are, richard, but i don't promise to do so and i'm not asking anyone to vote for me. how much can politicians do to create jobs? they can create stability and an expectation of what will happen and low taxes and regulation. i don't know, richard. what do you think? >> i'm glad you asked. politicians do not, cannot, and will not create jobs. we agree on that. we also agree on the fact that they create an environment that allows the private sector, men and women who start businesses, to it you'lly create the jobs that we all seek. here's the important point. there is a no-difference theis time around, because what happened is the awful, deep, structural recession. we are slowly but surely crawling our way out of a mess that took years it to get into, and he we certainly are

obama administration, they have a lack of ambition for this country and what it can and should do. but i would also say if he believes that, that tim geithner believes that a public sector job is equivalent to a private sector job. it's not that public sector jobs aren't important. teachers are important, firemen are important, nurses are important. but a public sector job doesn't pay for itself. taxpayers pay for it. a public sector job doesn't create other jobs. a private sector job pays for itself and creates other jobs. i frankly found his statement shocking. both because of its lack of ambition and because of its misunderstanding of what actually drives growth. it's not public sector jobs. >> let me ask you this, under reagan's recovery, were we laying off teachers and firefighters? were state governments laying off teachers and firefighters at this rate? >> no. absolutely not. >> well, that's part of the recovery. our unemployment is where we are right now if republican governors weren't slashing teach eshs and slashing first responders. >> that's a circular process, cornell. if
